Doris Ann Stahly, 84, longtime resident of Syracuse, died Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022, in Greencroft of Goshen.
Born April 14, 1938, Doris was the daughter of Leslie Grawcock and Mary (Spacy) Grawcock. She spent her formative years in the Churubusco area and attended Fort Wayne Business College after graduation.
Doris worked at Syracuse bank when she was younger. She spent time with Parker Hannifin later in life; she enjoyed working there and made many friends. More than any of her other roles, Doris was a proud mother and caretaker. She always made sure her two children were taken care of. She loved her grandchildren and was proud of all their accomplishments..
Doris was a resilient person, having survived a long-time illness leaving her hospitalized as a child for many years. In earlier times, she loved motorcycle cruising with family and friends, seeing many of this country’s beautiful sites. She was caring and always willing to help others. She enjoyed time spent with friends, particularly sharing meals at the local restaurants around town. Euchre was a favorite pastime, resulting in lively games at family gatherings over the years. She loved tending to her flowers in the spring and summer months. She was a collector of several things, including Precious Moments, cut glass and angels.
Those who survive include son and daughter-in-law, Darrell Stahly (Ann-Margaret Rice), Goshen; grandchildren, Isaac Stahly and Anna-Cate Stahly, both of Goshen; and brother, Donald Grawcock, Syracuse.
